The outerwear brand Stutterheim was founded after Alexander Stutterheim took his grandfather’s old raincoat to the last standing textile factory in Sweden and attempted to modernize the fishing-friendly design without undermining its strength. Stripped of its pockets and straps, the jacket took on a modern silhouette and the Arholma was born. But that no-kidding-around slicker – with its rubberized cotton exterior and comfy lining – was only the beginning.
Stutterheim has truly hit stride with its Stockholm model, the most urbane take on fishing apparel we’ve ever come across. The new jacket is a versatile, leaner, and half the price of the Arholma, but just as hardy: Its seams are double-welded – not stitched or taped. With painfully clean lines unmarred by the shiny trappings that muddle so much performance outerwear, this jacket is suitable for extreme adventures in and out of town alike.
